"ASTRO is always an excellent showcase of the best of oncology technology and we are pleased to demonstrate the benefits of our patient engagement software here. This year, however, we're especially proud to step beyond a demonstration to do something positive and practical for cancer survivors through The Samfund and our survivor engagement survey," states Equicare CEO, Len Grenier.
"The data collected in this survey will provide valuable insight into the challenges faced by oncology professionals, and will help us better understand the interactions between providers and cancer survivors," adds Samantha Watson, CEO of The Samfund. "The financial contribution from Equicare is, of course, hugely beneficial to our organization. We are grateful for their support and hope to see many ASTRO attendees at their booth."
Equicare is also proud to support the ASTRO Survivor Circle program. The Survivor Circle honors cancer survivors in the cities where ASTRO's Annual Meeting is held, and this year The Samfund is one of two organizations receiving the Survivor Circle Grant, along with Boston Cancer Support.
